Don CherryRelativity Suite ... LP
JCOA, 1973. Very Good+ ... $49.99
One of Don Cherry's most spiritual, far-reaching projects – a wonderful record that builds both on his key avant work of the 60s, and some of the globally-inspired sounds he was cutting overseas! This date was done in close collaboration with the New York underground of the time – and the large group features work from a rich array of great musicians – including Charles Brackeen on soprano and alto sax, Carlos Ward on alto, Frank Lowe and Dewey Redman on tenors, Charlie Haden on bass, Carla Bley on piano, and Ed Blackwell on drums – working with additional string and percussion players in a sound that's completely sublime! There's a great ear here for unusual sonic twists and turns, yet these are mixed with some deeper organic tones, and some freer jazz passages – all to really ignite a great fire as the set rolls on. Titles include "March Of The Hobbits", "Tantra", "Desireless", "Infinite Gentleness", and "Trans-Love Airways". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Walt DickersonRelativity ... CD
New Jazz/OJC, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure genius from one of our favorite players ever – and proof that some of the freshest modern jazz of the 60s was being recorded on vibes! Dickerson's tone, timing, and sense of composition alone are enough to make the set a great one – but he's also working here with a really great quartet – one that includes Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass, Andrew Cyrille on drums, and the excellent Austin Crowe on piano – a player with a really edgey tone, and one who we only know from Dickerson's early recordings. Tracks are freely arranged, but never too far out – and titles include "Sugar Lump", "The Unknown", "Steppin Out", and "Relativity". CD

✨✧ VariousRelativity Urban Assault ... LP
Relativity, 1996. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The cut here is Common's "The Bitch In Yoo" (original, unedited version, complete with the soundtrack intro), his famous dis of Ice Cube and the Westcoast Connection, produced by Pete Rock, released only on promo 12" single and this promo-only sampler. By the time the LP came out, Common had supposedly settled his beef with Ice Cube, so the track doesn't appear on any Common LP. Beyond that, it's actually a pretty dope comp, with a few tracks that were harder to get at the time, including MOP "World Famous", Fat Joe "Firewater", DJ Honda "Out For The Cash" (w/ Al Tariq, Beatnuts, Fat Joe, Problems), No ID "Real Weight", PMD "Rugged-N-Raw", Beatnuts "Find That".

✨✧ CommonResurrection ... LP
Relativity, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99 9.98
In 1994 when everyone seemed to be turning hardcore, Common Sense wasn't having it. Introspective tales of growing up and living on the South Side that fit perfectly with No I.D.'s mellow production and spiced up with two guest appearances by Y-Not aka Twilight Tone. Classic LP, solid all the way through. Being in Chicago, people have have always asked is for this one, and that tradition continues over the years. This one was made with little regard to contemporary trends, and thanks to that, it's fresh to this day! Includes "I Used To Love H.E.R.". "Book Of Life", "Chapter 13 (Rich Man vs. Poor Man)", "Nuthin' To Do", "In My Own World (Check The Method)", "Maintaining", "Communism", "Watermelon" and seven more. LP, Vinyl record album

The Beatnuts, minus Al Tariq this time, come back with "Do You Believe?" a nice one that reminds us of the hits from their glory days. The production on "Gimme Tha Ass", with the classic Philly sound "Forget Me Nots" sample, sounds almost like they're going for a crossover hit. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ CommonResurrection (2CD deluxe edition – with box and poster) ... CD
Relativity/Get On Down, 1994. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best hip hop albums of all time – given the remastered, deluxe edition treatment! In 1994 when everyone seemed to be turning hardcore, Common Sense wasn't having it. Introspective tales of growing up and living on the South Side that fit perfectly with No ID's mellow production and spiced up with a couple guest appearances by Y-Not aka Twilight Tone. A classic LP, solid all the way through. Being in Chicago, people always ask us for this one, but the original is often impossible to find, even here. This incredible 2CD edition comes in classy box – each disc in its own gatefold style sleeve, with liner notes by Brian Coleman, plus a full sized poster. Disc one is the full original album, with "I Used To Love HER.","Book Of Life", "Chapter 13 (Rich Man vs. Poor Man)", "Nuthin' To Do", "In My Own World (Check The Method)", "Maintaining", "Communism", "Watermelon" and more. Disc 2 collects the 12" singles from the period, with "Resurrection" (Large Professor remix, Extra P remix, Large Professor remix instrumental and Extra P remix instrumental), "Resurrection 95", "Communism" (acapella and instrumental), and "I Used To Love HER" (acapella and instrumental).

Carl Allen & Rodney WhitakerWork To Do ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2009. Used ... $8.99
Great work from the rock-solid rhythm section of drummer Carl Allen and bassist Rodney Whitaker – two players who set up a wonderful groove for the set, then open the door for a host of wonderful guests! Most instrumentation is acoustic – save for a bit of guitar and Hammond at points – and there's a shifting lineup on the set that includes Vincent Herring on alto sax, Kirk Whalum on tenor, Vincent Chandler on trombone, Rodney Jones on guitar, George Colligan on piano and Fender Rhodes, and Dorsey Robinson on Hammond. Many tunes have a glowingly soulful sort of style – a groove that reminds us a lot of Muse Records right at the end of the 80s – unabashedly straightforward, and often with a nice nod to soul. Titles include "What's Going On", "Work To Do", "Grahamstown", "Relativity", "A Time For Love", "For Garrison", and "Speak To My Heart". CD

CommonLike Water For Chocolate ... LP
MCA/Def Jam, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $31.99 35.98
A huge creative leap forward for Common! Com had been slowly moving from a Chicago street poet role into a more universally conscious hip hop soul from record to record to this point, but Like Water For Chocolate is the one that really catapulted him deep into that realm – especially given the excellent, mood setting production of Jay Dee/J Dilla and The Soulquarians. For a little while there, we missed the rawer Relativity era vibe, and we didn't fall as head over heels for Like Water For Chocolate as the world at large did, but in hindsight, maybe we just weren't ready for it – it's easily amongst the best hip hop albums of the period. Titles include "The 6th Sense", "Cold Blooded", "Dooinit", "Geto Heaven Part Two" with D'Angelo, "Time Travelin' (A Tribute To Fela)", "Heat", "The Light", "Thelonius", "Payback Is A Grandmother", "Funky For You", "A Film Called (Pimp)", "Nag Champa (Afrodisiac For The World)", "The Questions" and "A Song For Assata". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CommonBE ... LP
GOOD/Geffen, 2005. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
BE isn't exactly a back-to-basics LP in the vein of his classic work for Relativity – but it is indeed a return to a focused, genuinely soulful, no BS approach – and it's a very welcome one at that! It seems like Com was a bit affected by some of the criticism folks had for the spacious, astral Electric Circus LP – if you ask us Common had no reason to apologize, but we'd be lyin' if we said we weren't hoping for another batch of tracks that sound like they could have been written on a front porch on the southside of Chicago. This is indeed that record – 12 tracks, few guest appearances, and a warm, consistent sound all the way through. There's a 3 track span on this album, from "Chi-City" through "Real People", that's seriously close to perfection. Welcome home, Common! Ruggedly produced by Kanye West, with a couple of stellar production contributions from Jay Dee! Other tracks include "The Corner" feat Last Poets, "Go!", "Faithful", "Testify", "Love Is. . .", "The Food (live)" (this great track has been circulating for a while since it was performed on Chappelle's Show, and we're thrilled Common and Kanye had the good sense to include it on the album), "They Say" featuring John Legend and "It's Your World (Part 1 &2)".

✨✧ Gift Of GabFourth Dimensional Rocketships Going Up ... LP
Quannum, 2003. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A very nice solo set from Blackalicious MC Gift Of Gab – one that combines the fast, playful wordplay of Blackalicious with a more heartfelt soul style, kind of like Relativity era Common. It's a much more focused set than Blackalicious's Blazing Arrow LP – and possibly one of the best realized LPs we've ever heard on the Quannum label. The set was produced entirely by two hungry up and coming producers from the Northwest – Jake One and Vitamin D – and they provide a solid backbeat for Gab to work with. Very solid stuff – and we surely appreciate the consistency! Includes "Stardust", "Rat Race", "To Know You", "Hold On", "In A Minute Doe", "Ride On", "Just Because", "Way Of The Light", "Moonshine", "Flashback", "The Writz", and some more.

✨✧ Don CherryOrganic Music Society ... LP
Caprice (Sweden), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Early 70s greatness from Don Cherry – a double album's worth of profoundly spiritual soundscapes paired with lots of weird effects – and a very laidback groove overall! Tracks are written by Cherry, Terry Riley, Pharoah Sanders, and Nana Vasconcelos – and include performances by Don on trumpet, voice, and harmonium. Lots of cool percussion elements by the group, with some tabla and other Indian instrumentation. Titles include "Elixir", "Relativity Suite (Parts 1 & 2)", "Terry's Tune", "Hope", "The Creator Has a Master Plan", and "Resa". In a cool, trippy gatefold, too! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Andrew HillNefertiti ... CD
East West (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of Andrew Hill's best records of the 70s – a soulful trio recording performed with Richard Davis on bass and Roger Blank on drums – and a real return to the glory of his 60s material! Hill's piano still has that fresh angular modern approach of his Blue Note sides – but the bass and drum work on the album ground it a bit more – adding in some additional rhythmic components, and giving the session the spiraling searching mode of some of the other Japanese trio sessions from the time, in the spirit of the best recordings on the East Wind label for which this gem was recorded! Hill wasn't always at his best in the decade, but he definitely shines here on some long, very expressive tracks – with titles that include "Mudflower", "Nefertiti", "Blue Black", and "Relativity". CD
